A tumultuous chaos enveloped at Nsukka, in Nsukka Local Government Area of Enugu State, after the incidence of the attempted murder of the chairman of the Ogige Market Traders Association Nsukka (OMATAN), Dr (Mrs) Ngozi Ozioko.
The incidence was said to have been carried out by yet-to-be identified gunmen who shot at her.
The chairman was said to have closed from the Ogige Market after the day’s trading when gunmen trailed her to her residence and shot her at a close range.
Although she survived the assassination attempt by the whiskers, when she hit the gun which one of the assailants pointed to her chest, a bullet from the hoodlums caught her on her leg.
This has been reported to have happened barely two weeks after her re-election into office for her second tenure which took place last week.
In a conversation with some reporters, the chairman said ” I closed from the market yesterday and drove to my house. On reaching my house, I packed and opened my car door and two persons on a motorbike stopped close to me and one said ‘Mama Gee’, as I was fondly called, you think it is your birthright to be chairman of Ogige Market? While saying that, he pointed a pistol at my chest. I shouted Jesus and hit down his gun and the bullet went off and got my leg. He picked the gun and immediately jumped on a waiting motorcycle and they fled.”
